2000-09-09 Willie Jorrin w pts 12 Michael Brodie, Bowler’s Arena, Manchester, England - WBC. Referee: Richie Davies. Scorecards: 115-112, 116-112, 114-114. Billed for the vacant title after Erik Morales decided to move on, apart from the tenth which was effectively a 10-8 round after Brodie (122) took some big head punches and touched down for the mandatory ‘eight’ count, the latter appeared to have outworked, outfought and outpunched Jorrin (121¾) in many of the rounds. Two of the scorecards certainly beggared belief, especially after Brodie had maintained a good work-rate throughout, mixed up his punches well and boxed with plenty of authority to control Jorrin. Although having his moments, Jorrin did not do nearly enough.
